The Telehealth program provides in-home monitoring of patients’ health data, such as blood pressure, pulse oximetry, and weight. These vital readings are important to monitor for effective management of certain chronic health conditions. Daily monitoring ensures that the patient receives the appropriate care they need to prevent hospitalizations by enhancing health management and patient education.
Telehealth program features:
- Simple, easy-to-use equipment provided to each patient in their home to take daily readings of their weight, blood pressure, and pulse oximetry
- Daily readings are automatically sent via wireless connection to our system for our nurse to monitor
- Nurses are in contact with patients to discuss readings that are of concern and connect with patients’ physician, nurse case manager, and other contacts as necessary
- Real-time monitoring in the home can help reduce ER visits and hospital admissions
Telehealth is an effective way to transition care from the hospital to a home setting. Research indicates that 75% of Medicare hospital readmission can be prevented, and Telehealth is an effective tool in re-hospitalization management.
We will research your insurance coverage to determine what the out-of-pocket cost will be. A financial assessment can identify if the patient qualifies for financial assistance, which may be offered through our partnerships with other community agencies.
